Madison's next rising star could get a chance to shine in Hollywood.

A capella singers competed before a panel of judges today at Madison based Mid-West Family Broadcasting. About 70 people of varying ages entered the contest, and almost half of those will compete again Tuesday at the Dane County Fair.

The promotions director says applause will decide who then competes for the grand prize Saturday at the Fair. A single winner earns a trip for two to Hollywood. On that trip the winner gets a tour of the WB and Universal studios and they also get 25 hours of recording sessions at Boxcar studios.

The grand prize winner also gets to perform live at the Taste of Madison in early September.
